Rumor: SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT And BEHEMOTH To Tour North America

According to Live Nation, SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT and BEHEMOTH will perform on June 4 at the Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania. The date is expected to part of a full North American tour, which has not yet been officially announced.

TESTAMENT guitarist Alex Skolnick told Music & Art Interviews earlier in the month that his band "just signed on to a North American tour that I can't talk about yet, but it will be one of the biggest tours of the year."

SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD and BEHEMOTH last hit the road in North America together in the summer of 2017.

TESTAMENT and SLAYER previously joined forces for a North American tour in early 2016. Also appearing on the bill were British extreme metal pioneers CARCASS.

SLAYER is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "Repentless", which was released in September 2015 via Nuclear Blast. The disc debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 50,000 equivalent album units.

ANTHRAX will release its long-awaited live-in-concert DVD, "Kings Among Scotland", on April 27 via Megaforce. The DVD will be preceded by ANTHRAX's North American co-headline tour with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE"KillThrax 2018" — set to kick off January 25 in Montreal.

LAMB OF GOD's 2017 tour with SLAYER and BEHEMOTH kicked off on July 12 in Bemidji, Minnesota and concluded on August 20 in Phoenix, Arizona. The group's latest release was an EP called "The Duke", which came out in November 2016 via Epic.
